Exploring the Point Nepean immigration quarantine station
Pictured below, the very industrial looking fumigation chambers in the Point Nepean quarantine station were once used to disinfect the belongings of recently arrived immigrants.
Pictured below, more images from around the historic buildings at the quarantine station.
Parks Victoria has a nice PDF explaining a little about the attractions here.
